Rig: Elecraft K3/10 @ 5 watts, Lazy H cut for 20 meters, ancient Johnson Matchbox Propagation to Europe seemed down at the start, so I had to content myself with a lot of 1-pointers, which revealed themselves in the final score: more QSOs + fewer mults than last year = lower score than last year. Fortunately, things turned around later Saturday and many European stations were worked on first call on both 20 and 40 meters. Didn't elicit any sustained runs this time around - almost all S&P. Had planned to stay awake for European sunrise, but summer heat, especially in the shack with no air conditioning, induces sleep more readily than in the winter contests! Still managed to eke out a few more Qs and mults early Sunday morning, but couldn't get past last year's score. I never caught a Pacific opening, and worked only a very few African stations. Best DX catch was Saudi Arabia. It was also nice to work old friends Doug, KY4F and QRP stalwarts Tim, KT8K and Tom, AA1CA. A tip of the hat goes to Bert, N4CW for racking up a great score as a QRP op from Downeast Maine (as W1IMI)! Thanks, as always, to the superb, persistent operators who enable us QRP ops to have more fun than 5 watts should entitle us! 73, Mike, K8CN Durham NH
